We’re proud to show this stunner, found this summer while we were mining.

This stone was found by Richard Meinz at Sunstone Butte Mine in June this last summer. 128 carats originally, now 65 carats finished by renowned cutter/carver Darryl Alexander from Gilbert, Arizona. The stone shows all the colors of Oregon Sunstone and has a rare color change angle of around 5 degrees giving it a look of aurora borealis when tilted slightly. The stone has been entered into the 2016 American Gem Trade Association competition in Tucson, Arizona.
